Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
For Steve Rogers, awakening after decades of suspended animation involves more than catching up on pop culture; it also means that this old school idealist must face a world of subtler threats and difficult moral complexities. That becomes clear when Director Nick Fury is killed by the mysterious assassin, the Winter Soldier, but not before warning Rogers that SHIELD has been subverted by its enemies. When Rogers acts on Fury's warning to trust no one there, he is branded as a traitor by the organization. Now a fugitive, Captain America must get to the bottom of this deadly mystery with the help of the Black Widow and his new friend, The Falcon. However, the battle will be costly for the Sentinel of Liberty, with Rogers finding enemies where he least expects them while learning that the Winter Soldier looks disturbingly familiar.
Loan : Portsmouth – Torquay United
Alex Bass has put pen to paper on a new three-year Pompey contract.
But the goalkeeper will spend the 2018/19 campaign with Torquay, having joined the National League South outfit on a season-long loan.
The 20-year-old said: “I’m delighted to get the new deal done. We’ve been talking about it for a while, so it’s nice to get it over the line.
“The gaffer wanted me to go out and play football this season, then come back and push for a spot here.
“Hopefully I can play regularly at Torquay and gain some more experience, which is what I’m looking for at this stage of my career.”
Bass has made three senior appearances for Pompey, keeping a clean sheet on his league debut against Peterborough on the final day of last season.
The Blues academy graduate previously featured in an EFL Cup tie at Coventry and a Checkatrade Trophy clash with Fulham.
Torquay are managed by former Pompey head of community Gary Owers, who has ex-Blues midfielder Martin Kuhl as his assistant.

Captain America: The First Avenger
It is 1942, America has entered World War II, and sickly but determined Steve Rogers is frustrated at being rejected yet again for military service. Everything changes when Dr. Erskine recruits him for the secret Project Rebirth. Proving his extraordinary courage, wits and conscience, Rogers undergoes the experiment and his weak body is suddenly enhanced into the maximum human potential. When Dr. Erskine is then immediately assassinated by an agent of Nazi Germany's secret HYDRA research department (headed by Johann Schmidt, a.k.a. the Red Skull), Rogers is left as a unique man who is initially misused as a propaganda mascot; however, when his comrades need him, Rogers goes on a successful adventure that truly makes him Captain America, and his war against Schmidt begins.
Conor Chaplin grabbed a late winner as Pompey fought from behind to beat Havant & Waterlooville at Westleigh Park.
Alfie Pavey had fired the National League outfit ahead from the penalty spot, only for Nathan Thompson to find a quick leveller.
And substitute Chaplin ensured the Blues would leave with a victory by taking his pre-season tally to three goals.
Kenny Jackett fielded a different 11 in each half, as he had done at Cork earlier in the week.
The Hawks fielded a raft of familiar names, including Paul Robinson – also employed as a coach at Fratton Park – Nicke Kabamba and Wes Fogden.
The game started at a relatively leisurely pace, not surprising considering the scorching conditions.
Recent Hawks signing Pavey attempted an audacious shot from 40 yards in the early stages, but the ball sailed over the crossbar.
At the other end, a corner from Gareth Evans was only partially cleared and Tom Naylor drilled wide of the post.
It looked like the deadlock would be broken on 11 minutes following a neat one-two between Ronan Curtis and Brett Pitman, only for a fine Jordan Rose challenge to deny the former.
There were further half-chances for Evans and Lee Brown, as the Blues looked to move through the gears.
Brian Stock might have opened the scoring for the hosts, however, sending the ball drifting over from just inside the Pompey half after MacGillivray had ventured from his box to head clear.
But much of the action was taking place at the opposite end and the non-league side survived an almighty scramble inside their area.
Instead the Hawks took the lead from the penalty spot on 30 minutes, with referee Dean Treleaven –after being instructed by his assistant – deciding that Matt Clarke had fouled Kabamba.
It was Pavey who stepped up to take the spot-kick and he confidently sent MacGillivray the wrong way.
Not that the Blues were behind for long, as THOMPSON strode into the box before arrowing a shot into the bottom corner.
Pitman also had the ball in the back of the net before the break, although the skipper was denied by a linesman’s flag.
Robinson then came to the Hawks’ rescue, making a vital block when Jamal Lowe turned Lee Brown’s delivery towards the target.
Havant & Waterlooville 1
For the second friendly in succession, Jack Whatmough was handed the captain’s armband for the second half side.
Hawks then made their 11 changes a few minutes after the restart and it understandably affected the flow of the contest.
Oli Hawkins almost headed Pompey into the lead when he met Dan Smith’s centre, only for Ryan Young’s fingertips to come to the Hawks’ rescue.
His replacement Ben Dudzinski then made relatively comfortably stops to deny Ben Close and Conor Chaplin.
It was the turn of the hosts to threaten on 68 minutes and Luke McGee got down well to keep out Alfie Rutherford’s drive.
Whatmough soon showed why he played in defence, taking a swipe at thin air when Close picked him out unmarked in the box.
And Dudzinski flung himself to the right to keep out Adam May’s fierce effort, with the visitors starting to dominate.
Chaplin was next to try his luck after being teed-up by Close, launching a fine volleyed strike that fizzed narrowly past the post.
And it was CHAPLIN who bagged the winner in the closing stages, steering the ball past Dudzinski’s grasp and into the bottom corner from the edge of the area.
Hawks (3-5-2): Young (Dudzinski 56); Strugnell (Harris 56), P.Robinson (Woodford 56), Rose (Molyneaux 56); Tarbuck (Whittingham 56), Stock (c) (Ridge 56), Fogden (Lewis 56), Carter (A.Robinson 56), Huggins (Tuttle 56); Kabamba (Rutherford 56), Pavey (Triallist 56)

Pompey got their pre-season campaign off to a winning start with a 4-1 victory over Irish top-flight champions Cork at Turner’s Cross.
Christian Burgess and Jamal Lowe got the ball rolling with a goal each during a dominant opening 45 minutes for the English team.
Josh O’Hanlon reduced the deficit after the break, but Conor Chaplin showed he had lost none of his attacking instincts by adding a brace.
Kenny Jackett fielded a completely different team in each half and there was a first glimpse of all five of his summer signings.
Craig MacGillivray, Lee Brown, Tom Naylor and Ronan Curtis all started, with Louis Dennis playing in the second period.
Pompey looked the far superior team in the first half, although the hosts – in the middle of their title defence – made plenty of changes.
Brett Pitman had an early sighter saved low down by City keeper Peter Cherrie, while Naylor headed a corner clear at the other end.
A couple more half-chances followed for each side, with Brown dragging wide for the visitors before O’Hanlon sent a shot dipping narrowly over.
The few hundred travelling fans were in fine voice and would have enjoyed seeing Danny Rose – back from a long injury layoff – go into a crunching challenge as if he had never been away.
Pompey soon began to dominate and Curtis saw a header blocked after meeting a Gareth Evans corner.
The deadlock was broken just seconds later, however, when another Evans set-piece was firmly headed home by BURGESS.
Curtis then got free down the left and cut the ball back for Pitman, who hit a rocket of a shot that cannoned back off the underside of the crossbar.
And the lead was doubled just seconds later, as the skipper lofted a ball over the Cork defence and LOWE ran on to it before prodding into the net.
Pitman was looking a real threat and volleyed wide from Brown’s delivery, then failed to find the target at the back post after being picked out by Lowe.
Pompey were pouring forward at every opportunity and Curtis was denied by Cherrie, while Lowe had an effort deflected wide just before the break.
Cork City 0
Whatmough wore the armband for the second half, leading a more youthful side that included academy duo Freddie Read and Joe Dandy, as well as first year pros Matt Casey and Dan Smith.
And the visitors saw their lead halved when John Kavanagh squared for O’Hanlon, who managed to force a shot under Luke McGee’s body.
But the two-goal advantage was restored soon after, as CHAPLIN stole possession and found Oli Hawkins, before receiving the ball back and lashing home.
It was certainly a more balanced contest since the interval and both sides looked capable of adding to the scoring.
A spell of pressure from the hosts led to a Blues breakaway and Smith seeing a shot deflected on to the roof of the net.
Read then had an attempt from long-range and the ball flew narrowly off target as the visitors looked to wrap things up.
And that is exactly what happened on 76 minutes, when CHAPLIN made space for himself 25 yards out and fired home a fine effort that left Cherrie rooted to the spot.
The closing stages passed by without too much incident, although it was certainly a positive workout for the Blues on their return to match action.
Cork (4-4-2): Cherrie (Harrington 82); Kane, McCarthy (Kennedy 46), Delaney (Murphy 61), Barry; Kavanagh (Dunleavy 68), Phillips, Buckley (c) (Byrne 68), Daly-Butz (O’Sullivan 82); Beattie (Campion 46), O’Hanlon (Hurley 68)
Goals: O’Hanlon 53
Pompey: (4-2-3-1): MacGillivray (McGee 46); Thompson (Dandy 46), Burgess (Casey 46), Clarke (Whatmough 46), Brown (Haunstrup 46); Naylor (May 46), Rose (Read 46); Evans (Smith 46), Lowe (Chaplin 46), Curtis (Dennis 46); Pitman (c) (Hawkins 46)
